Smart Robot Market Trends

  • Increased adoption of smart robots in industries is driving the market growth

In the upcoming years, the market for smart robots is expected to expand due to the growing use of these machines in many industries. Smart robots use smart sensor technologies (such as ultrasonic, light, and touch sensors) to connect with the physical environment around them. Smart robots are a combination of cutting-edge technology with effective hardware. Modern robots are used in industrial processes in Industry 4.0, frequently operating continuously without human supervision. According to the International Federation of Robotics' (IFR) most recent World Robotics 2020 study, around 2.7 million industrial robots are now employed globally, an increase of 12%. Additionally, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), a nonprofit organization headquartered in Germany, said that in June 2021, robot installations in Europe increased by 15% and reached 78,000 units. Therefore, the market for smart robots is growing as a result of the rising use of these machines in many industries.

However, there is a labor shortage in a number of nations worldwide. In many industrialized economies, there is a negative growth in the labor force due to declining birth rates and an aging population. In contrast, the need for labor has increased in developing areas due to rapid expansion. Nevertheless, the demographic peak is likely to reach its ultimate stage in many emerging economies. Europe is expected to be badly impacted by a labor shortage, according to the databases of the UN Population Division and ILO LABORSTA. Due to its adaptability, cost, and efficiency, robotics is a well-liked form of automation. Robots have found use throughout the supply chain, from pick and pack to sorting and transportation. Robots also eliminate the need for insurance and benefits and can cut down on the price of seasonal and temporary staffing, overtime pay, and skill development. Additionally, robotic automation returns on investment are frequently reached in less than two years. Smart robots are increasingly being used in various industries because of the labor crisis in many areas and their financial benefits.

Furthermore, agriculture is currently one of many sectors where smart robots are employed, and this is a crucial trend that is growing in popularity in the market for smart robots. Businesses in the smart robots sector are concentrating on creating intelligent machines that may be utilized in agriculture. For instance, Farmwise, a robotics business based in the US, is developing autonomous agricultural robots in 2020 to give farmers more harvests, more revenue, and a healthier environment. The business starts with a high-tech weeding robot that can effectively collect weeds from farms, lowering or eliminating the need for chemical pesticides. The robots have successfully removed weeds from over 10 million plants, claims FarmWise. Thus, driving the smart robot market revenue.
